Santa Claus with a fireman

See Santa around New Norfolk today

DUE to changes in coronavirus public health restrictions, the New Norfolk Fire Brigade has brought forward its annual Santa Run and will be taking to the streets of New Norfolk this afternoon (Tuesday) instead of on Christmas Eve.

“Due to new government regulations, the lolly run will be happening this afternoon,” a New Norfolk Fire Brigade spokesman said. Santa will be visiting Corumbene nursing home and the hospital around 4.30pm and then entering the streets of New Norfolk.

“Please keep an eye out for our sirens and trucks. Locations and times will vary and lolly amounts will be very limited due to not having time to fundraise. If you wish to dontate lollies before 4pm please message or comment on the Facebook page to arrange.

The Gretna Fire Brigade’s lolly run scheduled for this Saturday has been cancelled.
